Royal Cape Yacht Club's Greenlight, co-skippered by father and son duo Dave and Roger Hudson, just managed to get ahead on the last beat of the 12-mile course to take second place.
"It was tight,' said Davis, day one's winning skipper on Dalys Insurance, who has also won eight previous Lipton Cups. 'I can't say it was too close for comfort. We knew there was never going to be any comfort out there."
Team Lipton UCT, manned by William Norton (skipper), Steven Rhodes, Carla Dyer, Oliver Hobson and Constantin Hatzilambros, finished seventh on the leader board after the first day of racing. Windless conditions scuppered the second day's racing, which was scheduled to start at noon.
The event, which is being hosted by Royal Cape Yacht Club in Table Bay, ends on Friday, 31 August.
